View Full Version : how does managment actually work?
18th Jan 2007, 6:00 PM
my sim has a small business and finally , when an employee got the 3 badges , i promoted her to manager, but on return to the residental lot and upon 'checking on business' , i only ever get the message about my shop not having a manager, and therefore no income. am i doing something wrong? also i have heard the term perspective manager, but i have no idea what it means? if anybody can explain this to me, it would be much appricated.

A Sim cannot promote an employee to management until the employee has 5 badges. Any combination will do.

5 badge points, not five badges.
Gold = 3 points
Silver = 2 points
Bronze = 1 point
There are bugs that cause managers not to appear correctly. If you have promoted her, you should be able to call and check in on the business. Try Pescado's missing manager fix.

Sorry 'bout that Gwill....Sheesh ! I *know* it's points. LOL Guess I didn't have enough coffee down my gullet when I typed it. Need. To. Drink. More. Coffee. Or refrain from posting with a low caffeine level. I've been guilty of that more than once.

i have managed to get the missing manager fix, but im still getting the 'no manager message' when i call to check on the business. the employee has the requirements and has been promoted (and demoted and repromoted to see if that would help) but nothing changed. the employer also has the 'promote employee' want, but it doesnt get forfilled when she promotes Tosha Go. Tosha Go, i might add, has been made into an adult to see if that would help, but again, no luck. if somebody could suggest something, or even provide another link to a manager bug fix(i got it from moreawsomethenyou,but the site says its down, so im not sure if its the right version or what), again, it would be much appreciated.
just a note: im using a maxis telephone to check the business,not a custom one, so i dont think thats the problem.

Did you set the manager to "mind the store" before leaving?

yep, i set her to mind the store, also i took all the downloads out a minute ago and the problem was still there, so its not something conflicting with something else.

Is your game fully patched?

Howdy, I didn't want to post a new question, since it can be some what tied in here.
I have a manager, I check in. For some reason I can't figure out how I get the cash my business has made that day? Do I have to go back to my business to get it?
Sorry if it seems like a dumb question. OFTB is new to me yet :)

The game will report this to you, at midnight each night I believe.

thanks to everybody for their help , i have found the problem and thought i better warn others. if you make a teen a manager, and you figure out you need an adult manager in order to check in(not sure if it was just my game or what, but the teens just didnt work as managers) dont grow them up 'artifically'. what i mean is, using any modified object or hack(like the insiminator) to grow the teen into an adult will result in the game not Realising that the person has actually grown, and still seeing them as a teen. therefore the manager check in will still not work. took me a while to realise this, which meant hrs were wasted trying to solve a simple problem, hope this helps anybody reading this.
